On June 21, 2006, the skateboarders of Phoenix, Arizona celebrated Go Skateboarding Night with Cowtown’s Golden Egg Quest, presented by Emerica.

Scene 1: Cowtown on Central at 7:25 p.m.
Phoenix Police Department: “What’s going on here tonight?”
Trent (Cowtown): “Oh, we're having a video premiere, we do it all the time. It was just advertised a little more this time, so that's why there are so many people around.”
Phoenix Police Department: “What is this Golden Egg thing I've been hearing about?”
Trent: “Oh, that. Well, we just hid a couple of hundred gold eggs with vouchers for free skateboarding product all over downtown Phoenix. We're going to throw out maps for kids to find all of them as soon as the video is over.”
